Tour Itinerary

Saigon to Phnom Penh through Mekong River

Day 1. Ho Chi Minh City – Cai Be – Can Tho (B, L)

The morning, depart from your hotel to drive from Ho Chi Minh City to the Mekong Delta town of Cai Be. Get on board to visit Cai Be’s colorful floating market, local cottage industries and an excursion to the evergreen islands in the middle of the meandering canals. Enjoy lunch in a restored colonial villa before continuing on the boat journey until reaching Can Tho late this afternoon. Check-in your hotel and spend the night in Can Tho.

Day 2. Can Tho – Chau Doc (B, L)

Wake up early for a cruise to the colorful Cai Rang floating market which bustles with wholesalers on big boats. Merchandisers cruise the market in smaller boats, and can easily find what they are looking for, as the larger boats hang samples of their goods from tall wooden poles. Following your visit to Cai Rang, we depart for the 3-hour drive to Chau Doc. Overnight in Chau Doc

Day 3. Chau Doc (B)

After breakfast, take a boat to the area’s unique fish farms and to visit a village of stilt houses belonging to the Cham minority. Here you will see colorful traditional textiles being woven on old wooden looms. Your afternoon is at leisure, and a visit to Sam Mountain for sunset is highly recommended. There are dozens of pagodas and temples around Sam Mountain and reaching the peak, with its fantastic views, is the highlight of the visit. Overnight in Chau Doc.

Day 4. Chau Doc – Phnom Penh (B)

After breakfast, an early morning boat departure takes you an hour up the Mekong delta’s waterways to the Cambodian border. After clearing immigrations, its another 4 hours along the Mekong River to Phnom Penh, your next destination.
